Beautiful Failures

xmas tree at Cilandak Town Square

Quoting my photography mentor, Madia Krisnadi

“Photography is about compromise, choose 1 priority, compromise with the rest of aspects. Photography is also a matter of like and dislike. Once you dislike a picture, you’ll find thousand way to say it. ”

So, dont worry. No matter what your gear is, just shoot :)

  • i set my LX5 to manual/apperture priority f/2.0 … usually using 1/30″
  • macro mode, put my cinamon roll under table (still on top of sofa actually)
  • focus to cinamon roll, lock it then recompose to the lamps :)
  • i use my toe to set focus in citos :P

hope you like it :)

Light Bulbs – 17 December

The focus is out of focus.

Went back from a workshop at Sukabumi. I stopped by at Starbucks in Rest Area 38 Tol Jagorawi for a cup of hot coffee . Nice interior and the lamps made a nice composition, specially when taken with intentionally out of focus like this :) Nice bokeh :p

and these :)
